This is one of my favourite restaurants. The food is fantastic and there are menu options for gluten free and vegetarian as well. The atmosphere is very cozy and romantic, but appropriate for both group/family visits or a romantic date night. Desserts are also amazing, I recommend the cannolis.

This attractive Italian restaurant is within the Best Western hotel. There is a central seating area with a high ceiling, and on both sides of this main room two steps lead to a low "balcony" with more tables. These "balconies" have several brick-trimmed arches connecting them to the lower floor. While allowing for some privacy, unfortunately, this combination of high... More

Wonderful restaurant. Both the location and website are a bit of a challenge but well worth the bit of effort to navigate. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The restaurant is nicely laid out to provide privacy without isolation. We both had pasta dishes and we were simply delighted with the quality and presentation. The Mushroom Ravioli... More

This restaurant is inside the Best Western Inn on Lakeshore Drive and had I not been advised to go there I might not have spotted it. This is an Italian Restaurant, quiet and with beautiful décor. I had a basic sort of Italian meal, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The service was good without being as oppressive as it can be... More

We enjoy the wonderful pasta dinners provided at Farina Ristorante and often recommend it to friends and family. The dining room was recently redecorated and is very nice. Portions are very generous.

Nice small restaurant. Located in the Hotel but it feels cozy and warm. Service was very attentive and pleasant. Layout is nice and there are areas to the sides that are raise and afford a more secluded cozy seating. That pasta is very tasty with lots of choice options. Small amount of non pasta choices and a variety of Wine... More

The menu was varied not all that varied but the food was cooked pretty effectively. Maybe a bit too formal for most travellers who are tired from being on the road & looking for something to eat.

I recently organized a surprise birthday party for my mother at Farina Ristorante, and overall it was a wonderful experience! They set up a large table in the bar/lounge to accommodate our group, as well as a desert table. The atmosphere was pleasant, the wait staff was extremely friendly and the food was great! Everyone who attended had a wonderful... More
